This chapter focuses on dynamic coordination, how it is mechanistically implemented in brain circuits, and the extent to which it accounts for functions performed by interacting brain systems. It also discusses how modulation of phase relationships of oscillations in different brain systems, in neocortex and hippocampus of the mammalian brain, may alter functional coupling; possible mechanisms for oscillation-based synchronization, particularly in the gamma frequency range; coordination by gain modulation and by synchronization of oscillation patterns; and the role of long-range projecting interneurons in synchronizing one neural circuit with another. Finally, the chapter considers how oscillations may influence dynamic routing within structurally constrained brain networks.

Keywords:   dynamic coordination, brain, phase relationships, oscillations, neocortex, hippocampus, synchronization, gain modulation, interneurons, dynamic routing
